Connecticut High School Evacuated



    Basketball Dunk Move Leads to Hamden School Lockdown

    (Published Thursday, Dec. 15, 2016)

    Hamden High School was placed on lockdown and evacuated this morning after an altercation was reported and police said a student making "basketball" moves prompted the response.

    Police said a school employee reported hearing someone walking toward her, then saw a teenage boy raise his fist as if he was going to punch her, so she hurried her pace to get away and alerted coworkers.

    The school resource officer investigated and police said the student was running in the hallway and made believe he was dunking a basketball when the school employee turned around, according to police. 

    Hamden High School students were brought to Hamden Middle School during the lockdown and have been allowed back into their own school.
